Hi ya'll,

The inside of my nose is so raw and I mean raw. It's been this way on and off for the last two years. All doctors do is give me a steriod spray which makes it worse or use saline and pertrolemum jelly. And that doesn't help and besides now I would not put that stuff in my nose. Once a doctor carterized it and that helped to heel it. My question is what can I use in my nose to help heel it and keep it that way? And a humidifier does not help either.

Thanks,
Sandi_lea

The inside of my nose gets like that sometimes...much more in the winter. I use Country Comfort Herbal Savvy with comfrey, it helps a lot. I use a q-tip to smear it on the insides of my nose every night before I go to bed. I used to get really bad nosebleeds and had to have the insides of my nose cauterized many, many times...it's not a pleasant experience...sorry you had to go thought that.

Comfrey salve has also worked well for me.

You could also snip off the tip of a vitamin E capsule and put the vitamin E oil inside your nose on the raw areas.

Hi,

Thanks for the replies. I live out in the middle of nowhere, and I can't get any salve around here. So I ordered some this weekend, it will be here sometime this week. In the mean time I might give the vit E a try.

Thanks,
Sandi
